Cathedral City Senior Center (CCSC) will hold its A Night to Remember Gala, presented by Steve Tobin, Johnny Krupa & the Grace Helen Spearman Charitable Foundation, on Tuesday, November 1, 2022, at 6:00 pm. The event will take place in the Cahuilla Ballroom at Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa, 32250 Bob Hope Drive in Rancho Mirage. Tickets are now available.
Hosted by Emmy-award winning anchor Peter Daut of KESQ TV, the gala will raise the funds necessary to continue the center’s mission of assisting all seniors, from active to homebound, by providing services that channel energy, relieve suffering, and protect health, happiness, and wellbeing. Community Impact Awards will be presented at the event to recognize those who have made significant contributions to improving the lives of seniors in Cathedral City and the community at large. This year’s honorees are David Mizener & Arturo Carrillo/Contractors State Licensing Schools and Chuck Leachman & Mickey Feigelson.
The event will feature a concert performance by Grammy winner and three-time Grammy nominee Jody Watley. A previous recipient of the BMI Medal of Honor, Jody Watley was inducted into the Women Songwriter Hall of Fame in 2022 along with other notable songwriters including Marilyn Bergman, Gloria Estefan, Indigo Girls, Siedah Garrett, and Loretta Lynn. Her vision — the trendsetting, forward thinking marriage of high fashion and street fashion with music in the 80s — long before it became the norm — along with her fusion of jazz and underground club culture — demonstrates her keen pop instincts and an ease with which she crossed, and still crosses, genres. Jody Watley forged the template that is now in everybody’s playbook.
The evening includes an exciting live auction with unique dining experiences, special date nights for a year, a Saks Fifth Avenue shopping adventure, relaxing stay-vacations, and more. In addition, there will be a $100 runaround for a chance to win a 5carat tennis bracelet valued at $10,000 from El Paseo Jewelers.
“We are excited to bring our friends, family, and supporters together for a festive evening to celebrate the senior center’s historic presence in Cathedral City and to recognize those who have made a tremendous impact for bettering the lives of our senior community,” said CCSC President & CEO Geoff Corbin. “For over 40 years, the center has been a home away from home for so many of our members and our goal is to make sure it is always there for them.”
